Wash day 1 December ’13

2013.12.01 wash dayStep 1
I washed my hair in four section with Creme of Nature Argan Oil Moisture & Shine Shampoo. My hair felt really good after this wash. It was moisturize and shiny.

Step 2
It was time for a protein treatment. In October I bought Creme of Nature Nourishing & Strengthening conditioner.  – When I use a product for the first time I use it in its natural form, that means I don’t use any oil. –  I will do a review about it really soon. I deep conditioned my hair for a long time (2 hours+).  – I was catching up with For Better or Worse episodes.- Even though this is a protein treatment, my hair didn’t felt hard at all. My hair was really moist and soft. I need to do more research about this product. But so far so good.

Step 3
I wrapped my hair with a t-shirt and let sit for about 20 minutes. In four section I moisturized my hair with Garnier Fructis Nutri Repair leave-in. Before I applied the leave-in I detangled my hair in four sections. I make sure my hair is about 50% dry. Detangling my hair when it’s still wet is a NO NO!!

Step 4
I moisturized my hair with my hair lotion mix (ORS Hair Moisturizing Lotion + rosewater)  and sealed  with ORS HaiRepair Vital Oils. I decided to do a braid out in for sections, lool I do everything in for sections.

What are your experiences with Creme of Nature Nourishing & Strengthening conditioner?

Quick wash routine 28 November ‘13

Last week Sunday I didn’t wash my hair, don’t ask me why (laziness ughh L). This week my hair was screaming for a wash but I couldn’t  find the time to do it. Last night (Friday) LeHomie had

2013.11.30 quick wash routine

a FABULOUS DINER EVENT. I was so lost what to do with my hair, but the important thing what needed to be done is wash my hair.

I normally don’t do a full wash routine during the week, so I was really lost how to go about it. It was late, I was tired and had to go to work the next day. So I decided to do a quick wash around  23:00 PM (giving myself the side eye).
